"The zapote is a fruit tree indigenous to Central and South America that produces both delicious fruits and delicate white flowers. The farm, La Flor del Zapote, took its name from these beautiful trees that surround it among the high mountains of the Peruvian jungle. ... All of the crops grown on this farm are produced using only organic fertilizers and the family leverages shade coverage provided by the surrounding fruit trees, and wild flowers. ... La Flor del Zapote is now four decades old and run by Rony Lavan Guerrero and his family of 8." -Farm to Roast
